Good morning everyone!

We've officially entered our job loss phase and having Chris home during the day has thrown my routines all off.....I apologize for the unexpected blog break!

I'm not quite sure how much to share here but think it's important to be honest....and since it's my blog, I guess I can do that! I promise that my posts won't be all doom and gloom as I believe that we will be well taken care of and God will be glorified through it. One of the blogs I follow has recently gone through something similar and she referred to it as their "God Watch" time. I love the thought of that and plan to call mine the same thing. As I've said many times before, our attitudes determine our perspective on a lot of things and this is one of those time when I must live out what I say I believe. I hope you'll join me as I update you on all the things that we learn and to see just how well God provides!

In other news, we decided to go ahead and purchase the dishwasher and fit it in. It's been in for a couple of weeks now and I LOVE it!! Here's what it looks like....

Chris also cut down the drawers that were in the spot we installed the dishwasher and fit them behind another existing door. While it's not a perfect arrangement, it's a whole lot better than having the drawers sit on the living room floor which is where they were for a week! :-)

I'll be back tomorrow to share some cards I made last week. Have a fantastic Thursday!

Many Blessings,


  1. Oh Melissa I'm so sorry to read about your husbands job loss. I'm a firm believer in the words "God will provide". I know it's sometimes easier said than believed. I find to be true. Melissa I'm going to offer up prayer for your family that a "new door" will open soon. Until then, try to stay positive. Your right, its your blog, you can type what you want to. :O)

  5. I just became a new followers and am so glad I found your blog (: I too am going through a transition phase. This year has been a wonderful adventure of embracing new opportunities while holding tight to God knowing that He takes care of things. It can be scary sometimes, but each day I see Him working in my life and that alone is a comfort. Prayers are going your way from me to you and your family (:
